Jew Ask Your Mom?


Loudmouthed comic Judy Gold weaves anecdotes about being single, lesbian Jew to bump up the funny in 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother. The 70-minute monologue starts with a static-filled phone call from Gold's mom, who frantically asks if her daughter is in trouble before hanging up with a matter-of-fact "so long." "She thinks Jeffrey Dahmer is chopping my body up into a million pieces, and she says, 'So long?'" asks Gold. The jokes fly from there.
